    Recently wrecked Kia KOUP

    Just recently, a forum member had an unfortunate accident where a truck rammed in to his KOUP from behind. The video was posted then removed.
    The owner is OK, gladly enough, -- does anyone remember the screen name of the owner?
    I've got a quick question for him.

    Did he leave the forum after that accident? (which would be understandable) Or is he still on the board?

    Oh wow, I remember when this happened. That was quite some time ago, I think it happened in in Oct or Nov but he posted his farewell in late December as PLP linked. Not sure hes active anymore

    Well I sent him a PM, but I'll wait a few days. A solution to a question I sent him may have materialized elsewhere.

    Post on his YouTube... just like he suggested to reach out to him. That was the reason for the second link.

    *poof* you talk and i appear... lol...

    reason for the later posting than the time of the accident was for legal reasons and sense it was done in December thats why i posted it then...

    mostly i've been busy with work... im back to my 15 day a month schedule but i've been busy on my off days... hopefully by march things will slow down for me...

    i've been sticking to my plan though as i just have a vehicle for driving to and from work, but that'll be gone soon as it'll have served its purpose and i will be getting a company vehicle... i've been slowly working on my garage to get it ready for paint and then a floor treatment....

    my wife did get me a nice 55" samsung tv to chear me up though lol
